First HomeKit-Compatible Products Launching Today, Led by...

Today, 12:30 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
HomeKit-icon.jpgAhead of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, several of the company's HomeKit partners are today announcing the availability of the first HomeKit-compatible products. HomeKit is Apple's home automation platform, first introduced at the 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference.

HomeKit provides a standardized framework for manufacturers that develop home automation products, letting them interface with the Apple ecosystem and with each other. Through HomeKit, connected devices like lights, thermostats, speakers, smart plugs, and more can be controlled by Siri. For example, HomeKit enables commands like "Siri, turn off my lights," or "Siri, turn the temperature up before I get home."

Though HomeKit was announced in 2014, it has taken nearly a year for companies to complete Apple's certification process and get products ready for store shelves. Several companies like iDevices, Schlage, and Elgato have previously announced plans for HomeKit-compatible products, but until today, no products were ready to launch.

The first three companies to announce completed HomeKit-compatible products that will be available for purchase shortly are Lutron, iHome, and Elgato. Lutron is debuting its Caséta Wireless Lighting Starter Kit with Smart Bridge, while iHome is announcing its iSP5 SmartPlug, and Elgato is launching its "Eve" connected home sensors. Ecobee and Insteon also announced new HomeKit-compatible products today.

Lutron's Smart Bridge, part of the Lighting Starter Kit, supports HomeKit and is designed to let users control their Lutron Caséta Wireless dimmers using Siri on an iPhone or iPad. The kit includes one Smart Bridge, two Caséta Wireless dimmers (which support dimmable LED, halogen, and incandescent bulbs), two remotes, and two pedestals.

The Caséta Wireless Smart Bridge with HomeKit support allows homeowners to control lights in specific rooms or areas. For example, just before bed, tell Siri "turn the lights off" and the Caséta Wireless Smart Bridge will turn off lights throughout the house. Unsure if the basement light is still on? Ask Siri to check and if so, turn it off.

iHome's iSP5 SmartPlug fits into a standard wall socket and can use Siri or the iHome Control app to control lamps, fans, and other devices that are plugged in to the SmartPlug. The SmartPlugs support different "scenes" to control multiple connected devices within the home, and the app will allow multiple SmartPlugs to be grouped and controlled with a single command.

Up to two SmartPlugs are able to fit into a single wall socket and a Wi-Fi connection is required for the plugs to communicate with iOS devices. According to iHome, today's iSP5 SmartPlug is just one of several products that will include HomeKit support, with other accessories in the iHome Control line coming in the future.

The Eve brand of connected home sensors by Elgato, which the company announced last Fall, allow users to monitor air quality, smoke, humidity, air pressure, energy, and water consumption all with the ease of a synced iOS app. The line-up of different sensors each focus on a specific aspect of home detection: the Eve Room for indoor air quality, Eve Weather for outdoor temperature and humidity, Eve Door & Window for security notifications of open and closed points of entry into a house, and Eve Energy for basic energy consumption data and the control of electronic devices.

eve-sensor-800x398.jpg
Some of the devices in the line aren't just simple sensors, either, with Eve Energy acting as a go-between for electrical-based devices and a wall outlet (although it's currently only available for European sockets). The product subsequently can monitor energy consumption of a device and can turn the product connected to it on and off at the touch of a button within the iOS app. Each of the products in the Eve family of home sensors are fully functional with Siri, allowing users to speak to their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to ask about temperature, the security of doors and windows, and control devices connected to Eve Energy.

The Caséta Wireless Lighting Starter Kit is available for $229.95 at Apple Stores beginning today. iHome's iSP5 SmartPlug will be available for pre-order from the iHome website beginning June 15. Elgato's Eve sensors are up for pre-order starting today, ranging in price from $39.95 to $79.95.

Ecobee and Insteon also announced a new HomeKit-compatible smart thermostat and Insteon Hub for controlling a range of switches, outlets, thermostats, and lightbulbs respectively. In the coming weeks, there will be even more announcements as companies producing smart home products finish their work on HomeKit.

Here comes Apple’s HomeKit, first products start shipping...

Today, 12:30 PM

<p class="p1"><a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...eon-homekit-2/"rel="attachment wp-att-382543"><img title="Here comes Apple's HomeKit, first products start shipping starting w/ Insteon, Lutron, iHome, Elgato and Ecobee" class=" size-large wp-image-382543 aligncenter" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/insteon-homekit.png?w=704&h=331" alt="Insteon-Homekit" width="704" height="331" /></a></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Insteon, Lutron, iHome, Elgato and Ecobee have all just announced that their HomeKit products are now officially available and/or shipping to customers.</span></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">The announcements come on the heels of our report that <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...ng-june/"><spanclass="s2">Apple partners planned this week to launch the first products</span></a> using the company’s new Siri-controlled HomeKit home automation platform, first introduced <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2014/06/02/apple-announces-homekit-api-for-ios-will-serve-as-a-central-hub-for-home-automation/" target="_blank">alongside iOS 8 last year.</a> </span><span id="more-382537"></span><div class="inlinead"><a href="http://rss.buysellads.com/click.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1433253845&c=980606997" target="_blank"><img src="http://rss.buysellads.com/img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1433253845&c=980606997" border="0" alt="" /></a></div></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">Insteon’s product is a hub that comes with a new app that will let customers control connected Insteon products, as well as other HomeKit-enabled products from other companies, including <i>lights, door locks, color-changing bulbs, garage door openers, thermostat</i>s, and more. </span></p>
<p class="p1" style="padding-left:30px;"><em><span class="s1">“We’re excited to be shipping our HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub and releasing the Insteon+ mobile app, enabling the mass consumer market to live in a world where all of their connected devices work together in perfect harmony,” said Joe Dada, CEO, Insteon. “HomeKit streamlines home automation for consumers, brings together multiple manufacturers and offers advanced features like remote control and voice control through integrations with Siri.”</span></em></p>
<p class="p1"><span class="s1">The <a href="https://www.amazon.c...SIN=B00YNL0KUC"target="_blank">$149 Insteon Hub is available through Amazon</a> and some other online retailers first, but will launch in stores in July. That’s the timeframe for other HomeKit products hitting stores, too: earlier today, Elgato put its HomeKit-enabled <i>Eve</i> sensors, variously capable of detecting weather, air quality and more, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/06/02/elgatos-homekit-preorder/" target="_blank">up for preorder through its website</a>.</span></p>
<p class="p1">Other companies are making announcements for availability of their previously previewed HomeKit products today too, including <a href="http://www.businessw...s#.VW2mt2TBzRY"target="_blank">Lutron’s smart hub + Caseta lighting system</a>, <a href="https://www.ihomeaudio.com/" target="_blank">iHome</a>‘s smart plug receptacle, and <a href="https://www.ecobee.com/" target="_blank">Ecobee</a>‘s smart thermostat.</p>
<p class="p1">Apple will likely have more of HomeKit to show at its WWDC developer conference later this month, including <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...ssories/"><spanclass="s2">a new ‘Home’ app for iOS 9</span></a> that uses virtual rooms to manage HomeKit accessories giving a user interface to the platform other than Siri commands. And, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/05/29/apple-homekit-shipping-june/" target="_blank">as we reported earlier</a>, we expect a handful of other HomeKit companies to announce products shipping this week as well.</p><br />Filed under: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/category/apps/'>Apps</a> Tagged: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple/'>Apple</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/available/'>Available</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/home/'>Home</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/homekit/'>homekit</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/in-stores/'>in stores</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/insteon/'>Insteon</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/ios-9/'>iOS 9</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/july/'>July</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/launch/'>launch</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/shipping/'>Shipping</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/wwdc/'>WWDC</a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godelicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/delicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gofacebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/facebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gotwitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/twitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gostumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/stumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godigg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/digg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/goreddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/reddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/382537/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="http://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=9to5mac.com&blog=22754319&post=382537&subd=9to5mac&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1" /><p>Check out <a href="http://9to5mac.com">9to5Mac</a> for more breaking coverage of <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple/">Apple</a>, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/category/apps/">Apps</a>, and <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/wwdc/">WWDC</a>.</p><p>What do you think? <strong><a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/06/02/apple-homekit-shipping-insteon-hub/#comments">Discuss "Here comes Apple’s HomeKit, first products start shipping starting w/ Insteon, Lutron, iHome, Elgato and&nbsp;Ecobee" with our community.</a></strong></p>

Apple Pay Gains 12 New Participating Issuers in United St...

Today, 01:14 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<img src="http://cdn.macrumors...ay-250x434.png"alt="Apple-Pay" width="250" height="434" class="alignright size-medium wp-image-445566" />Apple updated its Apple Pay participating issuers list today with 12 additional banks, credit unions and financial institutions supporting the contactless payment service in the United States. Apple Pay now has over 300 participating issuers nationwide, and several hundred more plan to support the NFC-based mobile payment service in the future. <br/> <br/> The full list of new Apple Pay participating issuers is reflected below, although it's worth noting that some banks, credit unions and financial institutions listed may have already had support for the contactless payments service and are only now being reflected on Apple's website. <br/> <br/> The full list of new Apple Pay participating issuers: <br/> <ul><li>Banner Bank <br/> <li>BayPort Credit Union <br/> <li>California Coast Credit Union <br/> <li>Centier Bank <br/> <li>Community First Credit Union (CFCU) <br/> <li>Glenview State Bank <br/> <li>HAPO Community Credit Union <br/> <li>Prestige Community Credit Union <br/> <li>Provident Credit Union <br/> <li>Staley Credit Union <br/> <li>Synovus Bank <br/> <li>Wood & Huston Bank</ul>Apple Pay remains available in the United States only, although Apple is committed to an international rollout of the mobile payments service in additional countries such as Canada, China and the United Kingdom. Canada, a well-prepared candidate for Apple Pay, could be the first country to embrace the service outside of the United States in iOS 9. <br/> <br/> Apple Pay gained 24 new participating issuers in early May and another 35 participating issuers in late May.<img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/35070/f/648326/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/a2.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/ach.htm"><img src="http://adchoice.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/ach.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi2.feedsportal.com/r/228766253777/u/49/f/648326/c/35070/s/46dcea9b/sc/28/a2t2.img" border="0"/><div class="feedflare">

Nasty Mac vulnerability allows remote attack, survives OS...

Today, 01:14 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
bios.png?w=704&h=359
A serious vulnerability in Macs more than a year old would allow an attacker to take permanent control of the machine, retaining control even if the user reinstals OS X or reformats the drive.
The vulnerability was discovered by security researcher Pedro Vilaca, who found a way to reflash the BIOS – code stored in flash memory, not on the drive. This means that the machine remains compromised even if the hard drive is physically replaced … 
http://rss.buysellad...845&c=906300063
Vilaca built his attack method on a known vulnerability that required physical access to the machine, allowing firmware to be rewritten by connecting a Thunderbolt device. It had previously been suggested that the NSA used this method to monitor surveillance targets, intercepting shipments of Macs to their addresses and installing the firmware modification.
This new approach means that no physical access is needed. The attack code could be installed via any one of a number of existing security vulnerabilities found in Safari and other web browsers.
The BIOS is normally set to read-only, preventing it from being modified or replaced, but Vilaca found that this protection is – for reasons unknown – removed when pre-mid-2014 Macs wake from sleep.

It means that you can overwrite the contents of your BIOS from userland and rootkit EFI without any other trick other than a suspend-resume cycle, a kernel extension, flashrom, and root access.

The researcher says that Apple apparently fixed the hole in mid-2014 models, but has not released firmware updates for older machines. The only reassuring note is that while a mass-exploit would be possible, Vilaca considers it most likely to be used in targeted attacks against individuals.
The only protection against the vulnerability is to never allow your Mac to sleep.

<p>In addition to launching <a href="http://9to5google.co...-imgur-app/">anall-new Android app this morning</a>, Imgur has also updated its iOS app with a notable and highly requested new feature. With today’s update to Imgur for iOS, users can now upload their own images to the service with the app directly on their iPhone. Users have the ability to upload from their Camera Roll or take an image with their camera from within the app and share it to the service.</p>

<p>With previous versions of Imgur for iOS, users could share reaction GIFs and from their favorites, but could not upload directly from their Camera Roll to the service.</p>
<p>For those unfamiliar, Imgur is a service that allows users to share a variety of different categories of images, including GIFs and memes. Users have the ability to create albums of images based on whatever topics they wish, in addition to offering a meme generator service that allows users to create memes on the go. With today’s addition of the ability to upload directly from their iOS device, it’s now a lot easier for users to create and share memes and images.</p>

Ecobee and Insteon Announce New HomeKit-Compatible Produc...

Today, 12:45 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Following in the footsteps of iHome, Lutron and Elgato, Ecobee and Insteon, two of Apple's other HomeKit partners, are also announcing new HomeKit-compatible products today. Ecobee is announcing a new smart thermostat, while Insteon is introducing the Insteon Hub for adding HomeKit compatibility to Insteon's range of switches, outlets, thermostats, and lightbulbs.

Ecobee's existing thermostat is already sold in Apple's retail stores, and as of July, the company is launching a new version that's compatible with HomeKit. The new WiFi-connected ecobee3 will be one of the first HomeKit-supported thermostat available to consumers, letting temperature be controlled through Siri commands on the iPhone and iPad.

ecobee.jpg

"As the first HomeKit-enabled smart thermostat, we couldn't be happier to bring this revolutionary technology to customers," said Stuart Lombard, president and CEO of ecobee. "The new ecobee3 uses wireless remote sensors to deliver the right temperature to the rooms that matter most, and now customers can conveniently control their temperature using Siri on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, or the ecobee app."

The ecobee3 uses several remote sensors to measure temperature and occupancy in multiple rooms of the house to adjust cooling and heating when a person is home and when away. Like other HomeKit-compatible devices, the ecobee3 can be grouped with other connected-home devices to enable commands like "Siri, I'm going to bed" which will turn down the temperature and turn off the lights.

Insteon's HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub, first announced at CES, pairs with the new Insteon+ app and connects to Insteon's range of smart home products, from LED bulbs and cameras to wall outlets, keypads, switches, sensors, and more. Insteon has a wide assortment of connected-home products that pair with its Hub, bringing HomeKit compatibility to a wide selection of accessories. Like the company's existing hub, the new hub pairs with almost all of Insteon's products and a few additional products, like the Nest thermostat.

The Insteon+ app is also able to interface with other HomeKit-enabled products, so the Insteon system can potentially be used to control an entire connected home. The app allows users to set up "rooms" and "zones," schedule scenes, and adjust multiple devices at once.

"We're excited to be shipping our HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub and releasing the Insteon+ mobile app, enabling the mass consumer market to live in a world where all of their connected devices work together in perfect harmony," said Joe Dada, CEO, Insteon. "HomeKit streamlines home automation for consumers, brings together multiple manufacturers and offers advanced features like remote control and voice control through integrations with Siri."

The HomeKit-compatible ecobee3, which includes a thermostat and one sensor, will be available for purchase in Apple retail stores in July for $249. The Insteon Hub will be available for purchase through Amazon.com and Smarthome.com in early July for $149.99.mf.gif
